UN War Crimes Tribunal Postpones Hearings For Khmer Rouge Leaders

United NationsPHNOM PENH: The United Nations war crimes tribunal in Cambodia on Monday postponed hearings for two former leaders of the Khmer Rouge regime to next January after lawyers of one of the defendants continued to boycott the court proceeding.

The tribunal's president Nil Nonn on Monday announced hearings will resume on Jan 8 next year, Xinhua news agency reported.

The tribunal on Oct 17 began the second and final trial for the regime's 83-year-old former head of state Khieu Samphan and 88-year-old Nuon Chea, chief ideologist of the Communist Party of Kampuchea over genocide charges.

Samphan's defence lawyers said they boycotted the hearings to prepare for their client's appeal against a guilty verdict in the first stage of the trial.

The two former Khmer Rouge leaders were among the few surviving leaders of the regime responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million people from 1975 to 1979.

In August, the two men received life sentences for crimes against humanity after their first trial at the tribunal.

Both men have appealed against their verdict.
